Well I am fairly certain that happens around the league too, kind of the nature of the position for the most part, I think, but it sucks- agree there

So true, nature of the beast. An NFL running back truly has the NFL title, that is "Not For Long".

I dont know, but I forget what it is exactly- I am sure someone knows, but I think the average span for a RB is like 5 or 6 years??? Anyone?

Re: Isn't it a coincidence

running backs get hit low so they dont juke out of the way.....the best place to hit them to take them down is the legs.....the more you get hit in a certain spot the more likely it is that you get injured there

all running backs are more likely to get injured in their knees because its the weakest joint around the contact area
